Unemployment:The problem of the day.

Updated on May 15, 2010

The scarcity of employment opportunities in the country has badly shaped he destiny and future of many graduates and alike.

After their on year service to their fatherland most graduates usually begin to limit for jobs in both public and private establishment. Unfortunately, they often receive response like these: come tomorrow, we shall think about it, your file is missing not on seat’ etc. the frustration resulting from this has kept many of them unemployed for a good number of years. Moreover, the socio- economic and psychological pains inflicted on them by idleness are beyond what words can explain.

Because of larger and idleness, resulting mainly from unemployment, some of the graduates usually resort to robbery. These armed graduate robbers either loss their lives to police gun or make armed robbery more sophisticated in a way that both the police and the masses are prone to danger. Consequently Nigeria loses many of her future leaders and suffers insecurity of life and property on daily basis.

Apart from this the fear of not getting job after graduation has compelled many prospective students to choose university courses, which they are not naturally good at, forgetting that there is no course in the  higher institution that teaches you how to make money or how to be gainfully employed, consequently those who have chosen courses based on job consideration are contributing very little or completely nothing to their self development, national growth and mankind. They also constitute the cream of unfortunate students who spend extra years in the university, due mainly to carry over setbacks and examination malpractice.

These and other things constitute the difficulties graduates suffer  because of scarcity of employment opportunities in the country. But should you continue to waste a good number of years after graduation searching for a job that does really exist? Should a graduate in his or her glory choose armed robbery as the only alternative to sole unemployment problems? And should you half bake your knowledge in a field of study where you arte naturally weak, simply because that field seems to have employment opportunities more than others?

If you find your self unemployed, what can you do to increase your chances of finding work? And once you find a job what can you do to keep it?

Who obtains the best job? Is it always the most qualified applicant? The job often goes to the most favored of the lord or the most effective job seeker either spiritually or physically. What can you do to become an effective job seeker?

In order to help both graduates and under graduates to seek of employment effectively and overcome the problem of unemployment in Nigeria, the following secrets are revealed, and they constitute the basis of your employment success right now.
